, a pro gadhafi facebook page mentioned his running habits and a picture of ambassador stevens. the posting directed a threat against stevens. issa says stevens stopped his morning runs for about a week and then resumed them. in june, an ied was successfully placed at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, blowing a hole in the security perimeter gate, big enough for 40 people to go through. and in the weeks before the september 11th attacks, unarmed libyan guards working at the consulate were warned by family members to quit their jobs, because of, quote, rumors in the community of an impending attack. those are just a few of the 13 things that darrell issa listed. and he also included this major allegation. according to issa, multiple u.s. federal government officials have confirmed to the committee that prior to the september 11th attacks, the u.s. mission in libya made repeated requests for increased security in benghazi. the mission in libya, however, was denied these resources by officials in washington. the state department has responded to darrell issa's letter. here is spokes
the votes really matter, it seems you're favoring president barack obama. i want to bring in steven moore. he's an editorial writer for the wall street journal and a good friend of the show. christine romans also joins us. she's host of "your bottom line" right here on cnn. i want to shoe yw you a poll of likely voters. in ohio, florida and pennsylvania, 51% say president obama would do a better job on the economy. no incumbent has won the white house without winning florida. ohio and pennsylvania are crucial states. steven, despite the economy right now, this weird optimism, is this the end of romney's chance to win? >> yeah, i think this upsurge in consumer confidence is hurting mitt romney, no question about that, ali. interestingly, i looked at the gallop data on consumer confidence, and they came to an interesting conclusion. they found that the big surge in consumer confidence on the economy was democrats, that democrats have had a huge surge where republicans have actually had a reduction in their confidence, and what they found, by the way, is that normally an increase in consumer
that killed ambassador chris stevens and three others. more than three weeks after the september 11th terrorist attack. the fbi had chosen not to go to benghazi until now, due to security concerns, raise iing questions about the integrity of the investigation. right before the show, i spoke to michael birnbaum by phone. >> reporter: they looked around here a little more than an how areu and then had gone to a market in town to look for potentially stolen goods. >> you've been in the consulate. what did you find? >> reporter: i found a gutted and loot eed series of building. it's burned out. it's empty now. it's not being overrun bye-byestabye-by bystanders. they let me look around. there are documents scattered all around. there are documents in the bedroom where ambassador stevens was staying. there are lots of documents and files in what appears to have been the security office for the mission. and among those files are records, sensitive records of administrative files, personnel files of libyans working with the americans, records of security protocols for what to do in case of em
is the ongoing situation regarding the death of ambassador christopher stevens in libya. lots of vagueness about what really went on in the days leading up to this and indeed, afterwards. what is your assessment of where we are now? >> well, let me tell you what's not vague, and that is five days after, five days after what was very quickly determined by the intelligence committee as a terrorist attack, they trotted out our ambassador to the u.n. to every major news outlet saying that this was a spontaneous demonstration because of a hateful video. that's probably one of the worst things that i have ever observed in my life, and obviously, there were warnings and obviously anybody who believes that an attack with mortars and rocket-propelled grenades and a very sophisticated attack is the result of a video, i mean, it's just ridiculous. and finally, piers, it's not the video that's stoking these demonstrations. as you know, it's the radical islamists that are using the videos as a means of inflaming passion in the middle east and i'll be damned if i'm ready to abandon the freedom of speech becau

with the new revelations on the deadly attack in libya. >> the attack that killed chris stevens and three other americans. >> the u.s. intelligence community now says it was a deliberate terrorist assault. cnn intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly has more. >> this is really the fullest account aing yet on behalf of the community which rarely venchers to the public domain to issue what they knew. the intelligence community says this was a deliberate and terrorized result sympathetic to al qaeda. that comes from se s from shawn. the reason we're seeing something like this two plus weeks after the attack, there is growing frustration within the inteigence community itself how information is being used. that initial assessment being this was a protest, a spontaneous attack that grew out of a protest in response to the anti-muslim films. it appears that as more information came in, that picture changed. the story from administration officials didn't change so dramatically and i think that really shows us that there are still unanswered questions. we don't have a direct timeline on when administr
the attack that killed ambassador stevens and three other americans. for example, they say that ambassador stevens used to jog almost daily, frequently with his security detail. but that the -- according to their sources they say, a pro-gadhafi facebook website posted a stacked photo of stevens and also a threat against him. so he stopped temporarily stopped for about a week. and then he went back again. here's what congressman daryl issa tells cnn. >> all indications are the ambassador was not reckless and took the advice always of his security forces including sometimes when they said meetings needed to be canceled. so i think this is a failure of intelligence, a failure of security and a failure of judgment. but not of the now-deceased ambassador. >> and, wolf, there are other incidents in fact we've been reporting on them all along that they note. one was an assailant blowing a hole in the security perimeter at the north gate of the benghazi mission tworks rocket propelled grenade rounds were fired at the benghazi office of the red cross. and finally the most serious probably was other
on for hours, and there were warnings, as you know, because cnn put out part of chris stevens' diary. things are going south all over the world. look at this morning in iraq. we've got a miserable failure in iraq. it's unraveling. afghanistan, more insider killings, because this president doesn't believe in american exceptionalism and keeps telling people we're winning. finally he said something about syria, but now we're going to give them communications equipment, which does very well against attack airplanes and helicopters and artillery and tanks. >> you're being sarcastic here. you want to give more? >> we need to arm them. the iranians have admitted that they're on the ground. russians arms are falling in. iranian planes are flying over iraq as we speak. >> do you think there's a conflict? do you think we need to add to it? >> i think the role of america is to lead, not follow. by the way, we blame it on the video, and it shows the absolute inept tud and ignorance of the realities. >> they were blaming the protests against the american embassy and the deaths, in fact -- >> it's the not
, it was an organized terrorist assault. four americans were killed including ambassador chris stevens. it wasn't just a violence end to a spontaneous protest over an anti-muslim film. >> u.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice was one of the administration officials who said it was not a terrorist attack and that has led congressman peter king to call for her resignation. here's what he told our wolf blitzer. >> to rule out terrorism, say it was not terrorism at that time was a terrible mistake to make whether it was intentionally or unintentionally. to show the significance of that, i believe she should resign, yes. >> the white house is standing by rice saying everything she said in that interview was cleared by interagency groups. >>> two people are hospitals after a shooting in minneapolis later this week. the shooter was laid off hours before the incident and then returned with a gun and shot and killed five co-workers before committing suicide. his family said he had a history of mental illness. among the dead, a business owner recently honored at the white house. >>> bank of america
christopher stevens was murdered. do you condemn the attacking which caused his murder? >> translator: fundamentally, first of all, any action that is provocative offends the religious thoughts and feelings of any people we condemn. likewi likewise, we condemn any type of extremism. of course, what took place was ugly, offending the holy prophet is quite ugly. this has very little or nothing to do with freedom and freedom of speech. this is the weakness and the abuse of freedom. and in many places it is a crime. it shouldn't take place, and i do hope that they will come in which politicians will not seek to offend those whom otherses hold holy or stainwith sanctiti. but we also believe that this must also be resolved in a humane atmosphere, in a participate o'environmeaer envi we do not like anybody losing their lives or being killed in wri. >> there are protesters all over the middle east now threatening the staff of american embassies, tlentding to kill them, behead them. do you think they should stop? >> translator: you see, i cannot determine what people or nations should do, but
stevens. what do you make of the pictures you see of what arwa's talking about? >> as i listen to arwa, it just reinforces what we said last week and we've said from the beginning. investigators have to go there, even if you didn't have all the physical evidence there that arwa just described to our viewers, you would want to know from the witness interviews, anderson, you would want to know measurements, you would want to be able to take people through it to really understand what the dynamic was. but then you see things like handprints and blood samples. one of the things, the first thing you would do, i'll give you an example, that is you would take the blood sample off the toilet and the bidet and see whether or not it matched first to the ambassador's. did he fall? there's all sorts of things you would want to know. you know, the pictures we've seen publicly of his body doesn't look like he did, but you don't know. and all those sorts of bits of information, it is true, it would be a less valuable crime scene now because people have rifled through it, but there's always some value
from tu nrk isa are being weed if turkey tonight in connection with the murders of chris stevens and three other americans. jill daugherty has been digging into the story and is with us tonight. >> well, on this particular incident, we don't know a whole lot of detail, but we know those two men, they are being questioned in turkey. and the understanding is that they were somehow allegedly tied to the attack in libya. which killed the ambassador. now, they were on the watch list that the u.s. compiled. that was given to the turks and the turks picked them up, apparently came into the country this week and the fbi is hoping they will have some type of access to them. >> questioned them already, but would like to have a chance to. >> right. >> there was also another development today in this investigation. this e-mail between the state department and the team benghazi surfaced. what do we know about that? >> well, this is part of, you know there are several investigations ongoing into the death of the ambassador and the three other americans. and how it happened. the charge is that
yet. that attack killed four americans, inclouding ambassador chris stevens. >>> thousands gathering in the streets of jordan after king abdullah ii dissolved parliament and calling for new elections. the kipg has too much power but an analyst says any change to the current system could weaken support among his base. >>> now, to syria where two major stories are developing. first, turkish soldiers responded with counterfire today when a shell from syria landed near a village. remember earlier this week five people were killed in turkey when a shell crossed the border from syria. this is the fourth day the two countries have exchanged fire. a youtube video shows rebel officers holding 48 people hostage. their lives clearly in danger. joining us now is nick payton walsh who is following this story from beirut, lebanon. nick, good morning. let's start with the story in turkey. what is being done to stop the conflict and prevent more shelling? >> well, this is actually what is so worrying here. this appears to now, as you say, the fourth consecutive day. this most recent one, according t
braechz, and attacks in libya leading up to the killing of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. for example, stevens, they say, took regular early morning jogs around tripoli with members of the security detail, but according to their sources, a pro-gadhafi facebook page trumpheted those runs, posting a threat against the ambassador along with a stock photo of him. stevens stopped running for about a week. then resumed. >> all indications are the ambassador was not reckless, and he took the advice always of his security forces, including sometimes when they said that meetings needed to be canceled, so i think that this is a failure of intelligence, a failure of security, and a failure of judgment, but not of the now diocesed ambassador. >> there were other security braechz, according to the committee and a sale that blew a hole in the security perimeter at the north gate of the benghazi mission. two rocket propelled grenade rounds were fired at the benghazi office of the red cross. and the convoy carrying the british ambassador was attacked by a militant with a grenad
american ambassador, christopher stevens. that was two and a half weeks ago. two and a half weeks that have seen the administration first describe this as a spontaneous outburst even though our reporting revealed that officials knew within 24 hours that it was not. only much later did they back away from that assessment. today, the director of national intelligence, james clapper, put out a statement explaining that early evidence supported that theory so that's why they told the white house and congress. clapper says that throughout the investigation, his agency made it clear that the assessment was preliminary and could change. neither his statement nor our sources specify a time frame for the dni's change of view. again, our sources tell us that law enforcement officials knew within 24 hours that this was a terror attack. our reporting also reveals that even though the administration says the investigation is going smoothly, the fbi has hit a bump in the road to the crime scene and tonight, we've got reporting that could explain why that is. a senior law enforcement official te

ambassador stevens was there and seized the moment. so it may have been planned, but 30 minutes beforehand. >> and of course we get into the whole question of immediate aftermath. when did u.s. intelligence now, when did they tell the white house, which is going to become a crucial issue, who is to blame for any errors that may have happened. from your reporting and you've done a lot in terms of studying these jihadist and extremist groups, what i find incredibly ironic here is that these groups linked to al-qaeda wanted moammar gadhafi to be killed. that was something that was accomplished by the united states, who are they are now trying to attack. >> that's right. they don't care who does their work for them so long as their work gets done. yes, they wanted gadhafi killed. there was a group called the libyan fighting group, the organization, they tried to assassinate gadhafi in '96 and gadhafi retaliated massively and they all fled, joined up with al-qaeda. during the revolution, they re-formed. not necessarily named as such, then they leveraged the nato support, which assassinated gadh

stevens and the three other americans died as a result of a terrorist attack. >> certainly on that particular question, i would say yes. they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy. >> two days later, secretary of state clinton made it even plainer. >> what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack and we will not rest until we have tracked down and brought to justice the terrorists who murdered four americans. >> keeping them honest, if the white house wants credit for quickly labeling what happened in benghazi an act of terror, can't also claim credit for prudently not calling it terrorism for so many days. whatever you think, clearly these are two candidates with some big questions to face and perhaps, they will less than 48 hours from now. that debate, a lot to talk about for us. the polls, debates, big economic numbers coming out this week. joining us, ari fleischer, serving as an unpaid occasional campaign advisor to the romney campaign. also, robert reish, former labor secretary in the clinton administration, economist and professor of publi
